When Jerry Died...
    #2420533 - 03/11/04 09:16 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Where were you?  How did you hear about it?  I was only a freshman in highschool when it happened and I was just starting to like Grateful Dead around that time so I don't remember the exact instant I found out about it.  I think I heard about it on TV and I was sad about it but I imagine it must have been really sad for the folks that felt an incredible closeness to him; the people who saw him play on countless, memorable nights.  I'd be interested to hear your stories on where you were when you found out about his death and how you found out (Ripple, KK, Chinacat, etc.).

at a gathering of friend and we where all tripping on acid (coincedce I think not).
And one of my friends had saw the dead 99 times and that time he decided he would never eat acid again.
He hasnt and I think its kinda cool to say the last time I ate acid was the day Jerry died.

I think Pillow's dad has always been a big deadhead and that's why he knew the band so well, even at the wee age of 9.

Good stories guys. Keep 'em coming.

i wish my dad was a dead head. when i heard about jerry's death i didnt even think twice about it i barely knew about the grateful dead. i could only imagine what it must have been like for deadheads at the time like loosing a family member and maybe much more for some.

Me and one of my best friends were backpacking in Yosemite National Park. We were driving back after our week long hiking trip, and were like WTF? Every radio station is playing the Dead. What the hell is going on. It wasn't until we were about half way home to Sacramento, that we heard that Jerry had died.

My story is very similar to Notapillow's.

I was the same age (about 10) and I also grew up with the Grateful Dead's music in the house constantly.  I have memories of the music from when I was born.  It was just always playing.  I always joke about being conceived to the music. :lol:

I remember the day and week really well.  The whole day my parents sat in the living room and cried off and on while MTV was on the tv.  I remember that day was the first time I heard of Rusted Root too.  There was a video that played that day I think.

But while my parents were crying I definitely knew what was going on.  It was a very depressing day. :crying:

I have very few crystal clear memories as a child, but I remember being with my parents when we heard the news, and not really knowing who he was or how he impacted so many people. My father was pretty torn up about it, even though he left the dead culture behind him when my older brother was born in the early 80s.

Though I didn't know much about Jerry or the Dead at the time, I knew he was counter-culture though, and being an impressionable young lad, that day specifically sparked my interest in the entire acid movement, and look where I am today :wink:  I probably would not have found shroomery or psychedelics in general without that day impacting my life. Even in his death, Jerry brought great things for some.

RIP Jerry, thanks for everything  :heart: :sun: :heart:

i was in college at the time. i was sleeping in after a rough night, and my roommate came in to tell me his father had just called and jerry died. "that's not funny, asshole... i'm trying to get some sleep!" i replied. after he assured me he was serious we turned on headline news to verify. i was so sad when the reality of the situation hit. i'd seen the dead a lot in high school and college, and now the fat man was gone. we took the day off school, listening to tapes and the radio and hanging out with other heads. listened to standing on the moon a LOT, then went to a show that night where a band played all these dead tunes and nearly all of austin's heads were out to celebrate his life. i still miss jerry and his magical music...
